A blog that deals with the Adelaide to Melbourne main railway line, both in prototype and to modelling Horsham.

Keith, now just a grain handling siding. The station was the same as at Tintinara, built in 1960, (now demolished). The engineers siding passes through the goods shed, still standing, while the grain siding passes behind the goods shed. Keith now has a 1876m crossing loop, on the Adelaide side of the yard.

Four cell concrete vertical, with behind, a two steel bins. Something was missing since my last visit in December 2008. (One of the wettest December days on record. The only time it stopped was between Keith and Bordertown). Below: the bagged grain shed: now gone.
The goods shed remains, just.
Four railway cottages remain, two brick, one fibro, and a standard SAR prefab concrete, five room cottage , all now privately owned.
